One of my favorite mass retailers has gone green!  Banana Republic just launched the Heritage line as part of it’s Summer 2009 collection.  Comprised of both men’s and women’s clothing, this orGLAMic, eco-friendly line uses fabric made out of organic cotton, soy silk and bamboo fabrics while still retaining the chic look that Banana Republic is known for.  As Simon Kneen, the executive vice president of design, said, “sustainability is the new luxury” and it’s clear that the company is continuing to make luxury affordable with these orGLAMic pieces ranging from only $39 to $150.  If you can’t wait for these orGLAMic finds to hit stores, check out the first selections available online by clicking here.

picture-9After the past 5 days of travel, skiing and general birthday debauchary, ila’s Body Scrub for Energizing and Dexoting is exactly what the doctor ordered.  Free of synthetic chemicals, this orGLAMic product “restores positive energy and removes tiredness…stimulates the circulation, particularly the lymphatic system, and is effective in easing arthritic and joint pain.”  Made primarily of Himalayan salt crystals, the scrub also contains organic argan oil (you may remember me touting it’s benefits in a 2008 posting about Josie Maran’s skincare line), almond oil and rosehip seed oil among others.  Click here to find the orGLAMic ila product that is best for you, from skin and body care to candles and gifts.

makoolBirthdays are the perfect time to take inventory, set goals for the next year and most fun of all, make wishes!  The Wishbone Necklace from Portland-based company Makool is the perfect accoutrement for such lofty dreams.  This delicate necklace is made from the real wishbone from a small, free range, organic chicken which is then cast into solid sterling silver.  The charm is tied to a sterling silver chain with our lucky red thread, and there is an orGLAMic little red glass bead in the back as well. orGLAMic is taking a much-needed birthday vacation, but until I resume posts on Monday the 30th you can click here to purchase the Wishbone Necklace.

picture-3Aviator Nation is the essence of laid back California cool.  Their casual-wear pieces, including hoodies, sweatpants and t-shirts are made in Los Angeles with the environment in mind.  Everything in this orGLAMic line is made from a blend of organic cotton and recycled polyester, and I love the company’s ethics.  Each year Aviator Nation chooses a cause to raise awareness for and they dedicate a collection of the line to that cause.  This year the cause is HIV/AIDS in Africa, and they’ve teamed up with an organization in Kenya called Comfort The Children.  They will donate $10 from each piece of the Africa collection sold to Kenya’s Kijabe hospital, with the money going directly to buying the antiretroviral medication people with HIV/AIDS need to survive.  Click here to check out their orGLAMic website.
